Abstract

Since the early 1960s, a significant number of books on film have been issued by a small number of specialized publishers occupying a spot “on the border between trade publishers and the university presses”. Targeting both libraries and film buffs, these publishers have issued many valuable titles which might not otherwise have appeared in print, including bibliographic studies, reprints of historic out-of-print volumes, and film industry memoirs and oral histories. Often speaking from personal experience, the author surveys the history of many of these publishing houses, notably Scarecrow Press, but also Garland Publishing, McFarland & Company, Vestal Press and Dover Publications.
